Understanding Theft Crime Charges

By Law Offices of David M. Wallin  Feb. 23, 2011 12:45p

Due to the nature of theft crimes, a conviction on your criminal record can have serious repercussions on your future. A conviction on your record could mean trouble for future opportunities, as well as leaving room for distrust with a potential employer if a background check reveals that you have committed a theft crime. The most important thing to remember about theft crimes is that a single conviction will be permanently on your criminal record and can follow you the rest of your life. This can be as minor as a shoplifting or petty theft charge, to more serious felony offenses. If you or someone you know has been charged for committing a theft crime it would be greatly to your benefit to acquire legal aid from a skilled Palmdale criminal defense attorney to assist you in defending your case.

Theft crimes cover a broad spectrum of both minor and extremely serious crimes involving the intentional stealing or removal of property belonging to another person or business without their permission. The most common theft crime, shoplifting, is often a misdemeanor crime due to the small cost of items stolen. There are some cases however in which these charges can be much more serious, such as if the item stolen is valued at or above $500-$1000, which can result in more severe criminal charges such as a potential for felony charges.
